Voksenforestilling

I værket TRUE STORY af skuespillerne og performerne Jonathan Bonnici (UK) og Satya Bhabha (US) inviteres publikum ind i et nøgent scenerum. Publikum placeres på stole midt i lokalet, og de to performere går i gang med deres mundtlige fortællekunst, hvor de inddrager scenerummet i allerede nedskrevne fiktionshistorier. En knirkende stol og den sortmalede teatersal bliver til noget helt andet i fortællingen. Metaplanet bliver et fascinationspunkt for publikum, der ligesom den knirkende stol og det mørke scenerum bliver inddraget som materiale i fortællingen. Publikum virker både som medskabere, deltagere og tilhørere, og grænsen mellem scene og sal ophæves ligesom grænsen mellem fiktion og virkelighed. Satya Bhabha og Jonathan Bonnici udforsker fortællingen som en sammenhængskraft og afdækker samtidig den aktive rolle, som hvert enkelt medlem af publikum spiller heri. 

Jonathan Bonnici og Satya Bhabha mødte hinanden i forbindelse med en forestilling på Shakespeares Globe Theatre i London. Jonathan har en BA i skuespil fra Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) i London, England. Satya er uddannet ved Yale University, USA.

Adult performance

In the work TRUE STORY by the actors and performers Jonathan Bonnici (UK) and Satya Bhabha (US), the audience is invited into a bare stage space and seated on chairs in the middle of the room, while the two performers begin their oral storytelling, involving the stage space in pre-written fictional stories. A creaking chair and the black-painted theatre auditorium turn into something else in the story. The meta level becomes a point of fascination for the audience, who, like the creaking chair and the dark stage, are drawn into the narrative as material. The audience are involved as co-creators, participants and spectators, and the boundary between stage and auditorium is dissolved, as is the boundary between fiction and reality. Satya Bhabha and Jonathan Bonnici explore the narrative as a cohesive force, while uncovering the active role that each member of the audience plays in it.

Jonathan Bonnici and Satya Bhabha met in connection with a performance at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. Jonathan holds a BA in acting from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London, UK. Satya is a graduate of Yale University, USA.
